TAPinto and its 75 partner sites have been verified on Facebook with the social media platform's blue badge, which is given to news organizations that meet Facebook's authenticity criteria. Facebook gives the blue verification badge to "eligible brands, media organizations, and public figures," based on factors that include policy compliance and public interest.

 TAPinto now joins major media companies throughout the world that are also verified. 

"We are proud to be recognized by Facebook," said Michael Shapiro, TAPinto CEO. "Being awarded blue verification badges for all of our Facebook pages is public recognition of the hard work and dedication of our TAPinto franchisees who provide our readers with original local news reporting on a 24/7 basis."
